I appreciate the effort involved in copying huge volumes like this, but unfortunately, the original volume is incomplete.

Although the National Parks Service has created the on-line Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System as an aid to finding one's Civil War ancestors, this resource lacks the details of place of residence, age, and dates of enlistment and discharge which leads one to other records for men with common names. Far better are the adjutant general's reports organized by State and this title "Roster and Record of Iowa soldiers" is the best possible source of information about Civil War soldiers from Iowa, including those who served in units organized by other states. A surname index for this work exists as: Index to Roster and Record of Iowa Soldiers in the War of the Rebellion. Volumes 1-3 [Boise, ID: The Idaho Genealogical Society, 1979].
